is there a program that will let me view the temp of my ATI 9800pro card in windows XP and also perhaps the fan speed which is now hooked up to my system fan connection on my motherboard.

i just put a new fan on and the card failed, first time, i just now took the new fan off applied more thermal grease and so far, fingers crossed it is going ok.

so i guess if is stays on for another hour or so do you think i'm in the clear? i just think the card wasn't getting enough connection to the fan, hopefully the extra grease will solve the issue.... please let it.

Try that.

Click on the attachment to see what it looks like for my card. Can't guarantee it will work for you because I dunno if your card has thermal monitoring.

Temps are cards core (first) cards ambient temp (second). The temp in the taskbar is the core temp.

Seems a little high for me coz I just finished a run through Far Cry. Ambient temp is typically about 38-40 and load temp is usually about 58-60 with my fan on low setting.

ATI's own Catalyst Control Center will show you the temps of the card.
Not always. Doesn't for my card even though I have thermal monitoring. I have to use a different app (above post).

I don't think the 9800pro has thermal monitoring, I believe ati introduced it with the XT version but I could be wrong.

Saz is right. The temps are shown on the "ATI Overdrive" tab which is only available for higher end and the new high end X series cards. I'm no help.
